 Language Arts (Beltz):

We will continue to read in our novels. Your child should be reading some of his/her in class novel at home and completing homework, as well as an additional book for the month of November. This in class novel may be counted as one of the two books required for the November reading log. This week in class, we started to fill out our reading logs. Completed reading logs may be turned in the day before or the day after Thanksgiving break. Please sign and check your child’s reading log to make sure that boxes are filled in and directions have been followed. This is also an excellent time to ask you child about book we are reading in class.  

If you wish to order from the Scholastic Book order, all orders must be submitted  by Friday, December 5th. Online orders by 9:00pm. Email Ms. Beltz if your order contains a gift.

To capture thrilling reading moments, Ms. Beltz would like to start a collection of photos of the 6 Black team reading outside of school. Right now the bulletin board has a picture of Ms. Beltz reading, which is not very exciting.  If you would like to help start a collection of photos of our team, take a photo of your child reading and email it to Ms. Beltz at sbeltz@hatboro-horsham.org. The photo could be taken at your home or another location where you child has managed to squeeze in some extra reading. We are looking forward to seeing the photos!

Parent Conference Information…

          The Sixth Grade is committed to parent/student/teacher communication.  We will be scheduling parent conferences on Thursday, December 11 from 1:00 p.m. until 6:00 P.M., and Friday, December 12 from 1:00 until 3:00 P.M.   Conference times are limited to fifteen minute timeslots. Please keep in mind that these are brief conferences and will be scheduled on a first come, first served basis.  If you are satisfied with your son/daughter’s progress, please know that you can always communicate through email rather than a conference. Sign-ups should be done before Wednesday, December 10, 2014.

If you have a major concern and wish to schedule a longer conference on a different day, please make arrangements through the guidance department at 215-420-5075.  E-mails, notes and phone calls are welcome at any time.

        If you wish to schedule a conference, please fill in the google doc embedded in this e-blast. The document will save automatically and will be sent directly to Mr. D’Alonzo.  Kindly keep in mind that the later times are intended primarily for working parents who cannot attend a day time conference.

Sign your child’s name in the time slot you wish to meet.  Then check -off the names of the specific teachers you wish to see.  Only one child’s name should appear in each time slot.  Thank you for your attention to this matter and your quick response.
